New York (AP) -- Home is where the heart is for Brandon Maxwell and it showed in his use of purple, his mother's favorite color, throughout his New York Fashion Week spring/summer collection.

Tuesday's show at Christie’s New York in Rockefeller Plaza opened with moody blue lighting and the sound of chirping birds as if it was just before daybreak. The atmospheric lighting gradually shifted to an airy lilac, evoking sunrise in the countryside.
